Homeless Housing and Services Program (HHSP)

The City of Plano is a new recipient of HHSP funds from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs. These funds are allocated annually to municipalities with a population of 285,500 or more and can be used to fund housing and services for persons experiencing homelessness. The City has chosen to use these funds to provide a Rapid Re-housing Program. The City solicited proposals from non-profit organizations to administer the program through a Request for Proposals (RFP) process, which closed on Friday, October 12.  Proposals are currently being reviewed.  More information about this program will be available in November 2018.
